The Phil Campbell Bobcats swept the Mars Hill Panthers in games Monday and Friday this past week.

Phil Campbell 9, Mars Hill 8

Sage Raper roped a walk-off single to give the Bobcats a 9-8 win over the Panthers Monday.

Mars Hill reclaimed the lead 8-5, scoring four runs in the top of the sixth inning.

Bryant Anthony hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to tie the game 8-8 before Raper came through with the game-winning play, scoring Cam Habada.

Habada went three-for-four with a home run, a three-run shot in the fifth that gave the Bobcats the lead, a double, four RBIs and three scores.
